Father Time

“The Brevity of life is hard to face.” – Unknown

Stop. Hold it right there. Just what the hell is going on here?

Just yesterday I was a mere lad of twenty-one. Now you tell me I’m seventy-seven.

What……are you nuts????

So what if it takes me ten minutes to get out of my recliner. I have issues you know.

But most of your contemporaries died in the last century.

That’s not true. My best friend in High School died in ninety-two.

Wait…..oh yea…..that was the 20th century.

Well………….it was a loud surprise.

But you have a daughter who is fifty-one.

You know something father time…………you are beginning to get on my nerves.
